I Never Realized Until Just Now...

...that the guy who played Olson Johnson in
Blazing Saddles was the same guy who played...


Jeffrey "The bums lost!" Lebowski
of The Big Lebowski.

The actor's name is David Huddleston and he
was also the grandpa on The Wonder Years.

I remember him from Blazing Saddles and The wonder years. Never saw The Big Lebowski..

I believe his name is David Huddleston and he's been roughly 285,000 TV shows. That's a rough estimate.

Bill- You must've missed the IMDb link I had at the bottom of the post. It's okay. It's the Friday before a long weekend.

Oh. That's not Dick Cheney?

I missed it due to the color - I don't see that color whatever it is. Kinda like those circles filled with different color dots ... normal vision sees some word, and guys like just see dots.

Wow. That's kind of a big revelation for me. Thanks!

My hubby just saw Blazing Saddles for the first time last month - he's led a sheltered life.

Y'know, he looks like the guy in Blazing Saddles. I think his name is David Huddleston.

Oh yeah, I remember him from The Big Lebowski. Now that I think about it, he does sort of resemble a cuddly Dick Cheney.

"A cuddly dick cheney"... is that a contradiction in terms or what???

Yes, David Huddleston-- great character actor, who's done a ton of movies.

What's funny is that Blazing Saddles and Lebowski are about 25 years apart, yet Huddleston looks exactly alike.
